Neatly made, though nothing spectacular film from Yugoslavia (Serbia). Has a made-for-television feel to it (though i'm not sure if this is the case, or if this film had a cinema release in it's homeland).
Some of the attempts at slapstick comedy just did not work, our hijacker constantly slipping on the floor wore thin after about the second time. The mocking of the police by the crowd was rather unrealistically childish.
Hard to find any fault with the acting performances working with a threadbare script.
My advice put your brain into stand-by mode & just let this film take you for a rather silly ride. 5/10
